    It doesn't cost much to gather 'em up. Consequences should be relative to the act. Look, I'm not real good at 'turn the other cheek' or 'forgive' or that stuff; I've walked away from long-term relationships. But the consequences need to be in the same realm as the act.

It's not the 99% against the 1%; it's the 47% against the 53%.

    I think this latest stunt proves that I was right. The people most hurt by this stunt are not the mythical “1%”; they are productive, honest workers, just trying o make an honest living. They would be among the “99%” for whom the “Occupy” vermin claim to be fighting; yet the majority of them probably had a very negative view of the “Occupy” vermin even before they found their own livelihoods under direct attack by these vermin.
    I don't think anyone should believe the obvious bias you espouse over these protesters. Whether or not in this incident they are right or have gone too far; overall your arguments and posts on the subject have not been enlightening nor have they been particularly useful to debate.

    Do you really concern yourself with every chipmunk, squirrel and other rodent you hit in the road? I know that I don't. These OWSers are rodentia, nothing more. Run them down and be done with it.

    You would not be able to run over people with a semi-truck. It's just easier to imagine someone else doing that. Give it up.

    Port truckers support the OWS action.

    One part of me, kind of thinks this is the wrong way to go about effective change...then again I seem to remember this small minority of people who went to a port, and destroyed an entire ships merchandise...sounds familiar....something about being taxed without representation...

    Then they should be fired for failing to do their job. That's a terminatable offense, even in a union.
